Walmadany (James Price Point) is located 53 kilometres north of Broome. It is a wonderland of ancient beauty and spectacular ocean views.
It is now in danger of being destroyed by the West Australian Government led by Colin Barnett. His Government propose to build a giant marine port and supply base to service the Liquified Natural Gas and oil industry. They also propose to build Liquified Natural Gas processing facilities. These proposals include massive ocean dredging and land clearing programs.
Walmadany is bounded by pindan cliffs, beautiful white beaches, crisp clear blue and turquoise water and surrounded by bushlands including beautiful fragmented monsoon vine thickets. Many rare and unique species of reptiles, birds and small marsupials, including the Greater Bilby, call Walmadany home. There are many undiscovered and unique species, that also call Walmadany home. There are many near-shore tropical fringing reef systems which are home to a large variety of life, from corals soft and hard, giant clams, oysters, algae, tropical fish and much more. Much of the life found in these systems rivals life that is found on the Great Barrier Reef, the difference is the reef system here is found within swimming distance of the shore. Humpback whales migrate to calving and nursery grounds just offshore and is in fact the largest whale migration found anywhere in the world. Numerous turtles nest on the beautiful white shores every year, with many local Olive Ridley turtles residing permanently.
